two republicans, george bush and bob dole, and four democrats, who were michael dukakis, gary hart, joe biden and dick gephardt. c-span: you mention in the opening that jesse jackson just didn't quite make the cut. how come? >> guest: my final criteria for the list of guys that i profiled was that i wanted the people who got to the point where they made that last turn in the road, where they thought to themselves, "not only should i be president, i'm going to be president. it's going to happen to me." when i saw jesse making that turn finally and for one brief week, it was after the michigan caucuses and everybody in the world wanted jesse. so i couldn't slow him down long enough to give him a sense of the help that would be required so much of the story in this book is internal, from behind the candidates eyes, that it really couldn't be done without their help. so when i couldn't get that kind of help from jesse, i decided that it was better to leave him out and preserve the level of the book, rather than write about somebody that i didn't know as well. c-span: it's how many page

figure. he had served as chief of staff to george tenet when george tenet under george bush developed their torture and secret prison program. john brennan's association with the torture and secret prison program of the george bush era of the cia is what sunk his chances for being picked as director of the cia at the start of the obama presidency. it's kind of weird. it's almost a con foreign concept in american modern politics that the left might block something from happening, but it's true. liberals thought obama stopping the torture program wasn't enough. that people tarred by association with that program should not be promoted, that there should be political accountability for people who were close to the torture policy. liberals raised enough noise about john brennan's potential nomination to run the cia in 2008 and 2009 that it never happened. at least it never happened in the first obama term. now it is happening in the second obama term. now apparently with the official nomination of john brennan to lead the cia today, now apparently we know that the white house has decided

of the sitting president or the public was not over enchanted with the war in iraq when george w. bush ran for reelection. against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seen to believed bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected a favorable referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communication skills of a candidate cannot be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different evaluation that merits being taken into account in judging between an income, barack obama, and his challenger, mitt romney. that is the chinks of the second term on too many presidents. 27 of 19 presidents -- only seven of 19 presidents elected to a second term avoid having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 30% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security of economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest that the gamble should not be taken. simply, that history into playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history predicted about a second term f

cain is a senator. john kerry who lost to george bush is a senator. al gore who lost, remember that just a little bit in 2000, he was the vice president, so he had to be there. and one other interesting note is that speaking of bush, george w. bush and george h.w. bush, father and son, neither will be here. george 41, the older, was in the hospital. he was just released. the younger said that he is not coming because he wants to be with his father. we know, covering george bush, he likes to stay low-key, and this is not the kind of thing that he likes to come to for lots of reasons. last time he was here when he was departing the white house, it was mixed when you look at the public perception and the public reaction to it. but i think that, you know, he likes to stay out of the limelight even at traditional events like this. >> think about it. george h.w. bush was here for both reagan inaugurals, then his own inaugural, bill clinton's inaugural. i'm not sure we had a bush at the second inaugural. both were governors. the bush name has been around a lot. >> since 1997. >> and that clinton name. >

's the way things have worked in presidential second terms. if you remember george bush was very ineffective in his last two years in the white house. bill clinton was wrapped up very much with the monica lewinsky scandal, so he had extend extenuating circumstances, and they're fighting some fights that they hope they can win. the chuck hagel nomination is a fight that they hope they can win. winning can beget winning. they'll have a big fight over the debt ceiling and these are fights that could blow up. the president will be more combative with republicans than thethe conciliatory let's all find a solution we can agree on. >> john: so we won't be compromising on his compromised compromises. you wrote, the best way to get what he wants his staff says, is to create pressure from the outside through campaign-style events like the one he staged in during the fiscal cliff negotiations. have we ever seen a president campaign with tons of cheering middle class folks behind him in iowa, have we ever tried that to get things moved across the aisle in the second term? >> i think not the way we're go

to play around with language. presidents do get in trouble. i'm not even going to mention george bush. but the biggest is probably teddy roosevelt who writes a letter to the head of the english department at harvard university. and that created its own thing. quite articulate and comes up with some domino theory type words. in his second novel, he said before we can finalize our plans, and the word finalize with such a discordant tone. there were editorials all over the country, people wringing their hands, there was a special column defending eisenhower were creating this verb. they hadn't even heard prioritize yet. it was the same resort of reaction. counterproductive was another one. the first example they can find is counterproductive, which sounds like a military term, once well untrammeled someone within war room. i'm building up to who i think is the king of them all. but lyndon johnson he picked up a couple. again, i'm using every thing i can find. pressing the flesh was a johnson is on. lady byrd johnson comes up with motorcade. it's picked up by time magazine. there was no e
